Buying sports gear
Buying sports gear Chesieres Reviews
Dec 31, 2007
Eelco needed some new gloves and one of the shopes we visited was sport'shouse. Don't mind the spelling, it is theirs! After a hardly noticeable, but still icy cold greeting by the shop-owner, we took a look around. Clothes, boutique stuff, ski- and snowboard gear, sunglasses, they have it all. State of the art, looking cutting edge, ultra fashionable. However, therein lays my problem with this place.
Ultra fashionable always means; prices through the roof, and this here joint is no exception. Sure, anything that has to be hauled up the mountain is more expensive, but at Sport’s house, the prices are ridiculous. Further more, they have all the right brands for looking cool, but lack a users brand, which designs focus on enhancing your performance or keeping you warm, comfortable and safe (e.g. the North Face).
Sport's house is a dangerous place, no matter what type you are. Fashion aficionados can have their credit card blocked after shopping here, skiers can lose their life after buying here. So, if you want to be cool, look ‘this season’ AND have a well-filled wallet, this is your place to go. If on the other hand, you are more interested in practical gear, designed on experience from users and you don’t want to over-pay, stay clear of the Sport’s house.
